Great idea, and thanks for sharing.

It is an excellent idea, and one that I strongly suggest that members with this issue take up.

Great idea!

Eons ago I added an Emotional Eating category (you can call it whatever you want) and suggested it in my teams. It occurred to me to share the tip again and one of my team leaders had the wisdom to suggest I bring it here, too.

The separate category helps me better distinguish between sane eating and out-of-control eating. Sometimes I use the Add Notes section to track at which times of day I've been out of control and with which foods.

The separate category and notations increase my awareness of myself, my circumstances and my behavior. More important, they give me more ammo against my stumbling blocks.

I'm not promising a solution for all time, but a new tool that may help others.

P.S. I think that it's also helpful to scribble a brief bit under "Add Notes" when I overeat "good food" during a regular meal. That is, a few words about choices I'd prefer not to repeat.
